Eton mess recipe (for a delicious straberry dessert!)

▶ Eton Mess Recipe (Strawberries, Cream, Meringue) – Titli’s Busy Kitchen – YouTube.

Eton Mess was created at the famous English school Eton College in Windsor, England, and was traditionally served at the school’s annual prize giving celebration every 4th of June. Eton College was founded in 1440 by King Henry IV and has a long list of distinguished pupils, including Prime Minister David Cameron and Prince William.

The name Eton Mess was taken from two parts; the first word, Eton, was obviously taken from the name of the school, Eton College, where the dessert originated. The word “mess” refers to the appearance of the dish, as its appearance is not very tidy. In addition, the word “mess” also refers to a mixture of ingredients that are either cooked together, eaten together or both.

There is a legend that the recipe came to be invented after a Labrador dog sat on a picnic basket at Eton, crushing a strawberry pavlova… but this seems to be just a story.
